lucky day. thanks, maria. >> eric: you know that contentious battle in massachusetts? elizabeth warren is trying to unseat senator scott brown. so, how has the media been covering this race? liz trotta with her commentary now. >> never a dull moment at harvard. two weeks ago, a divinity school professor announced she might have evidence that jesus christ had a wife. last week, a law professor who happens to be running for national office, was still defending her american indian ancestry. in fact, the liberal professor, elizabeth warren, has been talking about this since last spring, when the issue came up during her campaign to unseat senator scott brown, a republican. miss warren is a star in the democratic universe, a new and improved hillary clinton. perhaps even a presidential candidate, they say. she spent time as an adviser to president obam abut as the story goes, the republicans and even perhaps a few democrats ran her out of town. senator brown, if you haven't been paying attention, won his traditionally democratic seat in a special election after the death of senator ted kenn
whether elizabeth warren violated ethics. new questions about whether she is practicing law without a license. megyn: fox news alert on the same day president obama speaks to the world about violence around the middle east. two news-making polls on the recent riots overseas. brand-new hour of "america live." the new rasmussen poll asked voters if relations with the islamic world are better or worse than when president obama took office four years ago. 45% said they are worse. 18% thought things have gotten better. 31% believe the president has not made any difference one way or the other. the president appeared before the united nations and blamed this most recent unrest on a video that insulted islam, portions of which wound up on youtube. a rasmussen poll shows americans don't quite believe that explanation. joining me, scott rasmussen. are these -- is it it a partisan poll? did you ask democrats, republicans and independents when it comes to our relations with the middle east. >> yes and there is a huge partisan gap on this. republicans believe the relations with the muslim world
and americans give more money. pastors like rick warren lead mission trips that send thousands of americans around the world bringing aid to the poorest places on the planet. american troops are the first on the scene of a natural disaster. an earthquake strikes, in haiti and care packages come from all over the world but first from america and not far behind, of course, are presidents clinton and bush. but too often our passion for charity as a people is tempered by our sense that our aid is not always effective. we see stories of cases where american aid has been diverted to corrupt governments. we wonder why year after year after year of aid and relief, seem to never extinguish the hardship and persists decade after decade. perhaps some is failure to recognize how much the developing world has changed. a lot of the foreign aid efforts that we put in place some years ago were designed at a time when government development assistance accounted for about 70% of the resources flowing to developing nations. today, 82% of the resources that flow to developing nations come from the private sect
here? >> i'm here. i want to go to the massachusetts race, scott brown is targeting elizabeth warren about her native-american heritage. let's play this and get your reaction. >> i'm scott brown and i approved this message. >> harvard thought that elizabeth warren was a minority because she said so. >> harvard touted her as a minority. >> initially she said she didn't know anything about it. >> she kept covering up and going deeper and deeper in the hole. >> elizabeth warren got caught. >> seems like this is a pattern for her. >> it should affect a lot of voters and how they feel about elizabeth warren. >> we have enough people in washington that will say anything. don't need one more. >> the thing here is the timing of this ad, this topic on the very same week when some of his staffers were accused of the tomahawk chop. >> this is a big issue because he's losing to elizabeth warren. she claims to be native-american and checked the box and used affirm itch to get ahead. i am part native-american, american indian. that's part of my family. this is not going to prove or disprove. it is
, but apparently it's coming back. >> elizabeth warren, senator scott brown is getting personal. it has to do with elizabeth warren's claims of native american heritage. both sides are airing out the debate in tv buys across the state. >> i'm scott brown and i approve this message. >> elizabeth warren is trying to put questions about her heritage behind her. >> she admitted to identifying herself as native american to employers. she's facing tough questions about whether she claimed to be a minority for professional gain. >> warren did give an answer, the problem is, it keeps changing. >> is there anything else that will come out about you that we don't already know? >> you know, i don't think so, but who knows. >> as a kid, i never asked my mom for documentation when she talked about our native american heritage. what kid would? but i knew my father's family didn't like she was part cherokee and part delaware. my parents had to elope. i never asked for and never got any benefit because of my heritage. the people who hired me all said they didn't know about it. i'm elizabeth warren, i approve
and make native war advice to elizabeth warren's cherokee defense. brown has not confirmed or denied it but here's what he said. >> this is the first time i'm hearing of it, but i know we had a lot of rallies. so i don't know what you're specifically referring to, but if you're saying that, certainly that's not something i condone. it's somethingly something that if i am aware of ill, i'll check into it. but the real issue here is and the real offense is the fact that professor warren checked the box. she said that she was white, and then she checked the box saying she was native american and then she changed her profile in the law directly once she attained her tenure. that's quite offensive to native americans and something that she should release in her records. >> doubled down in a commercial and i for the live of me can't figure out why they're debating this in massachusetts and why he's debating this. >> what i would add is that elizabeth warren within 24 hours had her own ad which suggest thad the war rinne campaign doesn't want to just leave it out there, they they're concern
aides did in appearing on this video where they were mocking elizabeth warren for her native-american heritage. that is apology sufficient and should this be an issue in this campaign? >> certainly it's up to the people of massachusetts to determine that. they have watched this race, they have seen scott brown tell people to take a look at elizabeth warren to determine her heritage, which is frankly offensive to me, people in massachusetts will make that determination. but i will say this. again, we have a race where elizabeth warren is fighting for the values that american families care about, making sure we all have an opportunity that our kids all have access to education, that medicare and medicaid are there for our families within we need them and that's the difference in the election and i believe strongly that elizabeth will do well in massachusetts in november. >> senator patty murray, thank you very much. thanks for being with us today. >>> and developing now, on "andrea mitchell reports," we are watching the united nations where israel's prime minister, benjamin net
says he does not condone the video that reportedly shows his staffers doing a to elizabeth warren's claim of cher row ski descent. two recent polls have shown warren pulling ahead. madonna said she was being ironic when she called president obama a black muslim. madonna said i know he is not a muslim and what if he were? the point i was making a good man is a good man. >>> as part of education nation we've been looking at the stories and challenges of students across our country especially those at risks and stats show many african-american boys from low income urban areas face the greatest danger. a series called save my son takes a look at what urban family face trying to keep their kids away from bad influences including abuse in their own homes. >> i had a conversation with her, some of that stuff is as fresh as if it happened yesterday. >> i remember too, where it was, she fell to the floor and she got grabbed. i think it was a toaster and hit him. and then she was like -- the kids are in the room. and then he looked up, hit her one more time and then stopped. i'll never forg

question. i have developed a healthy respect for the media. i was a spokesman for warren christopher and madeleine albright. the media plays an indispensable role in our society. they ask the tough questions that need to be asked. they are very independent people. the journalists are independent and doing their job. we are lucky to have them. governor romney has been a very successful person and whenever he has done. i think he was a good governor of massachusetts. i lived in massachusetts. he has had a tough presidential campaign. foreign policy -- he doesn't have attraction. he has not been able to articulate a compelling view about how he would leave this country in a different direction than president obama. maybe he can begin to do that. he gave a good speech yesterday on our development policies. he needs to do more than that -- more of that in the debates. president obama and governor romney have different views about where to take this country internationally. host: where you expecting from the speech by the iranian leader today? guest: mach mod ahmadinejad -- mahmoud ahmadin
